Widely known for its amazing atmosphere, unique culture, upscale shopping and world-class dining, the historic village of Cashiers has been a haven for vacationing families for well over a century. Drawn to the natural beauty of the area and mild temperatures that accompany elevations of over 3,500 feet above sea level, countless visitors have selected Cashiers as their vacation spot of choice and keep returning, year after year.

For those who live here year round, breathtaking views of the Blue Ridge Mountains continue to astound, the scents of wildflowers and mountain laurel blended together on a cool mountain breeze continue to inspire, and the activities of a stroll through an ancient forest or the time-honored tradition of a day of fly fishing continue to delight.

You are welcome to enjoy an outdoor concert on the Village Green, explore the gift shops that line the streets of Cashiers’ downtown area, or just sit back, relax and breathe in the unforgettable sights and sounds that surround you.

High Hampton Inn and Country Club

Rich in history and brimming with Southern hospitality, High Hampton Inn and Country Club has been charming visitors of Western North Carolina since the early 19th century. Beloved mountain retreat of South Carolina’s Civil War Brigadier General, Governor, and U.S. Senator Wade Hampton III (1818-1902), many of the buildings and historic artifacts from the original family estate were lost in a fire in 1932. Construction began almost immediately of a three-story inn in place of the previous Hampton Hunting Lodge. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the inn still stands today, and continues to serve up unrivaled service along with its famous fried chicken and decadent desserts.

With all the natural beauty and outdoor activities available at High Hampton, patrons of the historically accurate rustic Inn will hardly miss the fact that there are no telephones or televisions in the guestrooms. Visitors are invited instead to enjoy swimming, boating and fishing on the 35-acre private mountain lake, as well as golf, tennis, hiking and spa. For more than 175 years, guests of High Hampton have been enjoying grand views of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Chimneytop Mountain and Rock Mountain. A wonderful retreat for families and noted for its imaginative children’s programs, High Hampton has been honored as one of 100 Best Family Resorts. Vacation homes and quaint cottages are also available throughout the property’s 1,400 acres. The Inn and Country Club is a favorite spot for corporate retreats, weddings and family reunions.

High Meadows

Just a short three-mile drive from the Cashiers Crossroads, the lovely gated community of High Meadows offers a private enclave of home sites of up to 10 acres in size. Bordered by the stunning beauty of the Nantahala National Forest, with crystal clear views of Whiteside, Terrapin, Sassafras and Black Rock Mountains, High Meadows of Cashiers serves as a quiet refuge for its residents. With community playing a central theme, as it does in many Cashiers communities, a lovely pavilion with outdoor fireplace and picnic area is at the heart of High Meadows. It serves as a perfect gathering place for neighbors or special family events. A network of hiking trails run throughout the neighborhood – ideal for a morning hike, mountain biking, horseback riding or an evening stroll under starry skies.

Lonesome Valley

With a history dating back to 1895, Lonesome Valley has served as a bastion to the great outdoors since Pittsburgh entrepreneur E.H. Jennings first acquired 35,000 acres near the sleepy village of Cashiers. Gracefully spanning the valley floor of the largest box canyon east of the Rockies, Lonesome Valley is said by many to be the place where Heaven and Earth meet. Today, with planned activities for residents and amenities such as community gatherings in The Farm House, recreation in The Sports Barn, and relaxation at The Remote Spa, Lonesome Valley is anything but. Cottage and home designs pay homage to the Southern Appalachian farmhouses of a bygone era. Great care is given to preserving the history and natural setting that Lonesome Valley has become famous for.

Mountaintop Golf & Lake Club

True to its name, Mountaintop Golf & Lake Club is perched high atop a beautiful expanse of the Blue Ridge Mountains between the popular destinations of Cashiers and Highlands, North Carolina. At 4,000 feet above sea level, Mountaintop offers its residents not only some of the most beautiful views in the region, but also extremely pleasant climates, no matter the season. Set upon a sprawling 731 acres, the developer – Discovery Land Company – has designed a luxury mountain retreat community of just 251 estate lots and 75 cabins and lodges peppered about the property. Lots range in size from one-half acre to five acres, providing residents with the peace and quiet that has become a trademark of luxury mountain living. From a cascading waterfall to a nest of birds high atop a hardwood tree, the sights and sounds of nature surround the community. However, for those who seek more than just peace and quiet, amusing activities abound.

Mountaintop is highly revered for the level of service available to club members through the added benefits of property management and lifestyle concierge services. For the fun lover, Mountaintop offers a Tom Fazio-designed golf course, as well as opportunities for water sports like kayaking, wave running and canoeing at the private Lake Club on nearby Lake Glenville.
